Emancipation, I am Palestine, Little Nora, Oppression
Since some of my tweeps cant enter my notes on Facebook I decided to share few of my poems here:
I'm scared and alone,
Explosions, blood, dead humanity is flying in parts.
Should I run? Scream? Shout? Or start crying?
I am lost like a ghost.
I don’t understand but I'm trying hard.
Am I dead or I'm dying?
Maybe it’s a dream that I can shake away.
Maybe it’s a night mare with dark rainbow rays,
Or can it be just a bad day?
My gut says it’s a pain that will stay.
I close my eyes and open them again,
I can't believe what happened;
I saw a man playing the violin,
I looked deep into his eyes
I swear I saw a tear but I can't hear him cry.
I am thinking of ways to escape, but how?
I look at the skies and see them get raped.
I look at the beaches and see them beaten up in hate.
It's so dark yet there is no shade.
How did I get myself into this crusade
The man whispers to my ear;
"The exit is very very near,
All you have to do is to come over your fear."
He guided me towards getting strengthen and
All I did was listen to the voice with in.
He said my wings are ready to help me fly
"Up there no one can hurt you now fly up high!"
He asked me to set myself free
Where I can witness the marriage between infinity and eternity,
There where all miseries end
I am safe; I can transcend
I am …… Palestine
I am Palestine …… I am not scared
I am Palestine …… I will never be heard
I am Palestine …… you have no idea what I bared
I am Palestine ……. I have done things you never dared
I am Palestine ……. Have you ever cared?
I am Palestine ……. I will never be shared
I am Palestine ……. I fly high even when I am an injured bird
I am Palestine ……. I shall never be raped, hurt or admeasured
I am Palestine ……. You tried to subject me and you simply backscattered
I am Palestine ……. Just like the phoenix from my ashes I emerged
I am Palestine ……. You asked and I answered
Little Nora went early to bed that night
When she heard a humming sound becoming closer
She rushed to her window to see warplanes so close in sight
But she didn’t care
Because she could swear
That this happens every night
She went back to her warm bed
And placed her little head
On her little fluffy pillow colored red
She started counting the happy sheep
She reached number nine then fell asleep
Dreaming of a new happy peaceful day
So she can wake up, kiss her mom then play
Little Nora didn’t know that this is her last night
She won’t be able to witness the sunlight
A loud deep explosion was heard but Nora never woke up
The missiles were invading her room non-stop
Little Nora stepped into another world
Were birds & laughs can be heard
Nora saw little children with freckles and curls
They were all playing and feeling safe
They were all strong and brave
Nora smiled thinking she is in heaven and no longer in hell
And that her family had her story to tell
Nora knew that her people won’t be numb anymore
They will fight for their freedom till it comes to their door
*Nora could be a Palestinian child or a Libyan child or an Iraqi child or an Afghan child or any child living in an oppressed country where fascists have no mercy and she has to pay the price of freedom.
Get on your knees
Your mission is to beg for every tease
I want to hear you scream “Please”
You don’t have any say
All you can do is to obey
Freeze when I demand you to freeze
I have no mercy and nothing to cease
Your pains and torture will increase
Your ownership and dignity will decrease
I will rape your land
Steal your legacy
Break your legs
So you cant stand
When I invade your privacy
I will break your face
Paint you with disgrace
Until you rest your case
And stop fighting for your freedom
I will cover your sky
And make it dark
Dry your sea
Until you bark
I will rip your mother’s heart
I will kill your dad
Ill use your children as human shields
Rape your wife and sisters
Maybe rape you too
With no regrets or things to undo
Ill burn your trees
Ill demolish every house
Shoot the birds and step on any mouse
Wipe you from this earth
Show you all shades of death
Feed every newborn child
To my monsters and their pride
Ill never be happy
Until I bring your insides outsides
Ill put you in a little box
Only you and a wild fox
Bring joy to my eyes
While I see you two fight
What a sight
I want to see ripped apart
Deny you from food and water
And when I am bored
Ill play with you a game called “slaughter”
Ill throw you in refugee camps
Fill you all over with labels and stamps
Ill take you a hostage
Till you give me your heritage
Ill stab you till you stop resisting
Ill unleash my devils as long as you are existing
Yes ofcourse I want peace
Doesn’t that mean to blow you into pieces?
And step on you like little creatures?
Deal with it, reality bites
I don’t see anybody standing up for you
They all abandon you
You are on your own
Oh wait your not even that
You are for me to own
I terrorize you with all kinds of internationally banned weapons
While you fight back with a stone
Isn’t that justice?
I don’t care if the world is a witness
What will the world do?
Fight for you?
I don’t think so
The world followed silence
When I was using violence
So just lose hope
I don’t care if you cope
I like playing this game
I never felt shame
Do you want to know my name?
My name is OPPRESSION
Through this poem I wish salvation
For every oppressed nation
Not only Palestine
We are all meant to shine
Break our mental and physical constraints
Release ourselves and others from all kinds of pains
Live free or die trying
One nation, one love and united by humanity
